Effects of speed and cocaine

Speed and cocaine make people feel less tired. The hunger feeling disappears and people feel very happy after use. People are confident and talk a lot.

This effect lasts up to an hour with cocaine. With speed it can last for hours. Speed and cocaine are often used to perform well. One feels strong, talkative and one can sustain efforts for longer. In reality this demands a lot from the body.

Headaches, abdominal pain, sweating and fever may all be experienced during use. The heart starts to beat faster and there’s a chance of muscle cramps. The additional energy that one gets is not from the drugs, but from the body. Which is why there is extra tiredness after use and a feeling of depression.

Cocaine and speed are produced illegally. Because of this one never knows for sure what exactly is in them. Hence there is a big risk when using them.
